Dogs rescued from the streets and roads
There have been many cases lately, and we could not communicate them as separate news items any longer, partly because we’ve been overwhelmed by the sheer numbers. We do not exaggerate in saying that sometimes we have 10 calls coming in daily, with desperate people asking for our assistance. Sadly, the calls offering to help us are less frequent.
To start with, we were called to help a little female dog, Smiley, who was very gentle, and tried to find herself a home. Unfortunately, she was chased away each time, and often ran among cars, in order to avoid being beaten. She is now spayed, treated for internal and external parasites (she was covered with ticks), vaccinated and received a microchip. She is now at the APAM Sanctuary.
Another drama has to do with little Cory, another female dog. We were called for her because she was very small and in danger to be hurt by other dogs. She was also unable to find food on her own. Cory is also at APAM, spayed, treated for parasites, with a microchip and waiting for a family who would want her. .
The third case concerns a small dog who roamed around a cemetery, limping. The person who asked for help could not keep him because she had a house full of dogs. Filou is also at the APAM Sanctuary and is neutered, treated for parasites and with a microchip. Sadly, he’s still limping, although the x-ray shows no fracture. We believe he has an older injury and a nerve that was affected. Thankfully, he’s not in pain and can run well.
The fourth case is that of Mollie, a little female dog we saw while we were driving. She sat among the cars who were filling their tanks at a gasoline station. Thin and desperate, she was begging for a piece of bread. When we reached her we saw her face light up, as if she knew someone finally wanted her. Now she is spayed, treated for parasites and with a microchip and she already has a family who wants to adopt her.
The fifth case was an unusual happening, such as can only happen to us. We were driving to Timisoara, when, on a secondary road, two dogs appeared in front of the car, as if they were hitchhiking. We stopped, and to our delight, Aliosa, the tame female dog stayed and was happy to be taken into the car. Unfortunately, we couldn’t catch her friend, who ran away every time we tried to approach him, dashing in front of cars, in danger of being hit. Sadly, no one was willing to help, so the dog suddenly took off across the fields and disappeared.
We are asking you to please try to help us: any little bit means a lot for the animals, and it’s very important that you share our emails so that people know about us. We can only succeed together: alone we have no chance of coping with so many cases and abandoned animals. Thank you very much.
